DIY Mini Doll House

Hello and happy Friday! Who’s excited for the weekend? I am! We have been trying to do family pictures since last Fall and for various reasons (sick kids, crazy schedules, weather, etc) had to reschedule and push them off a handful of times. And now I’m so happy the day is finally here and we are doing them!!! I’ve been wanting some current family photos with our little baby Henry (who isn’t actually so little anymore) before he gets ANY bigger! Can’t wait for Annie Randall to work her magic today and see what she captures behind her lens! It’s pretty fun for me to be on this side of the camera and let someone else photograph our family from a new perspective! 

Today we have the cutest little DIY doll house project for you from design team member Amanda Rydell!  I mean, all you have to do is scroll down and see the photos and I know you will be wanting to make one of these for your little one as well! The best part is that the project is actually quite simple to make and if your little ones are a bit bigger, they can even help you make it! Bonus!

Have I got a fun D.I.Y for you today!

I love crafting handmade items that can be used in every day home decor. If you have little ones this shadow box house D.I.Y. is just for you. It has a fun modern look to add to your wall with easy access of taking it down for playtime.

Since I don’t have any little feet running around my house, I made this project as a gift!!!


SUPPLIES NEEDED: Wood House // Maggie Holmes Bloom paper collection // adhesive // pencil for tracing // scissors // paint

woodhouseTo start, I created a template for inside the house by folding a white piece of copy paper. After I got my house template created I used the template to cut out my pattern paper.


I love that this project involves pretty paper AND paint. Two of my favorite things. I painted the entire house except the inside where my paper ” wallpaper” will be placed.

I also thought it would be really cute to just paint the inside walls but I decided to paint the entire house. Both options are super cute.


Once your house is dry from painting use double sided adhesive to place your pattern paper inside. I am really crushing on this black floral print from Maggie’s Bloom collection.


Now comes the fun part, decorating!!!!! I had a hard time choosing what embelishments I wanted to use. They are all so cute. I decided on the banners and a frame with a butterfuly to complete the interior look.


The cutest little wood dolls can be found here. I hope you enjoy making this darling little project as much as I did.

Happy Friday Friends!
